Yokosuka H5Y Cherry

yoko-h5y


In 1934 the staff of the Yokosuka Navy Arsenal turned their hand to the design of a twin-engined flying-boat, the Yokosuka H5Y powered by two 895kW Mitsubishi Shinten 21 radial engines. Although built to a total of 20 during 1936-40 as the Navy Type 99 Flying-Boat, its performance was disappointing and, consequently, was deployed only on second-line duties.
